Equal Pay Day 2017

IMG_0462.jpg

Friday (10th November) marked the day that due to the gender pay gap, women effectively stopped earning compared to men. That means there are 51 days where women, on average, are working for free.

Worryingly, the gender pay gap is actually widening for younger women. As a Labour politician I will do all I can to stand up for gender equality in the workplace. The gender pay gap has no place in society in 2017- we all must take urgent action today. Join me in making a #paygappledge now - and help to close the gap for good.
